into sadism, avoid them, avoid them, there's something wrong. that's your tip of the day. and that's it for us tonight. check out the fox news factor website, which is different from billoreilly.com. we'd like you to spout off about it, of name and town, name and town. word of the day do not be jejune. and i reserve the letters, we get thousands and thousands of letters, we've had controversial shows this week, coming back after the first of the year. keep writing and don't be discouraged if we don't look at your letter. we're looking at all of them. your time will come. again, thank you for watching us tonight. i'm bill o'reilly, please remember the spin stops right here. we're definitely looking out for you.
9:01pm
>> . >> welcome to hannity, and tonight we're learning that the white house will be the site after critical showdown over gun control later this week. now, the face-off between vice-president joe biden and his gun control task force and the national rifle association is slated to take place on thursday. now, n.r.a. officials confirmed to fox news had the organization accepted an invitation to attend the closed door session, it's expected that the group will discuss a variety of options how to curb gun violence and issues related to mental health and entertainment and video game industry are reportedly going to be put on the table. there is no question that limiting your second amendment rights is priority one for sheriff joe and his team. now, these breaking developments come to us just days following a washington post report indicating that
9:02pm
president obama is considering banning assault weapons and high capacity magazines, but that's not all, not even close. the paper also revealed that universal background checks for all gun buyers, a national gun data base, strict mental health checks and much more are all being floated by this task force. as for the n.r.a., in the aftermath of the sandy hook tragedy, the organization recommended placing armed security guards in our schools. and earlier today, the white house reiterated president obama's skepticism of that idea. watch this. >> if the president said he doesn't want to pre-judge any recommendations that any stake holder might present, he did in his meet the press interview respond to a question about the specific recommendation that the n.r.a. had made and by saying that he was skeptical, that putting more guns in schools would solve this problem. but again, we look forward to
9:03pm
hearing from a variety of organizations and civic groups and others who have insights into this problem. >> sean: now as we await the outcome of thursday's meeting. liberals continue to attack the merits of the second amendment. if case you're not familiar, a well-regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall nod be infringed. now in recent days the left have focused on the word "militia" and do so without consideration to what they've said. the co-author of the second amendment garyieorge mason, wha is the militia, it is the whole people, to disarm the people is the best and most effect actual way to enslave them. and all power is inherent in
9:04pm
the people, their right and duty at all times to be armed. i can go on and on with quotes from our founders and framers, the point, if they were alive today they'd be mocked, besmirched and by the left wing media the question here is profound, are we still a constitutional republic. do we still believe in freedom, do we believe in liberty? our constitution is our rule of law. will liberals now allow that to be shredded? what's missing in this entire debate is balance and common sense. do criminals obey laws? no, if 99.9% of gun owners never break the law, why should they be deprived of their rights because of the action of a few. are we going to ban booze to stop drunk driving, ban cars and planes and people die when those are used. if a knife used in an attack, god forbid and follow al sharpton and ban knifes in
9:05pm
america. psycho tropic drug use, video movies and video games, if america wants to prevent future tragedies, many things we can do. my advice, if we protect, for example, our money, our politicians, our hollywood stars, they have armed security. maybe it's time that our children get the same armed security. maybe retired police officers and then we're not going to have to take away the rights of law abiding citizens and that, my friends, is how we go about saving america. and joining me now to debate this important top, republican congressman tom cotton of arkansas and democratic congressman of california. gentlemen, welcome to "hannity". >> hi, sean. >> thanks for having me on for the first time. >> sean: welcome aboard. two young congressmen. glad you're here. congressman, do you support gun control? i support gun safety measures, i grew up in a family of gun owners and hunters and i went hunting with my dad as a kid
9:06pm
and you know, deep respect for the second amendment and the culture of our country. i don't think we can look at what's happened and say we shouldn't do nothing the at all. and the cost of doing nothing, nothing will change. >> sean: a lot of gun owners and americans are racing to the store and buying more guns than ever before. they feel and agree with them, that we're about to see very restrictive measures that are about to be put on us. what do you support? >> i support an assault weapons ban, we already have one in california don't support doing anything above what we do in california. you made a great example what are we going to do, ban booze next? when you start today look at drunk driving deaths in our country 30 years ago, we raised the age at which our teenagers could drink to 21. >> sean: we didn't take it away, restrict it from different people. >> we didn't take it away, but put on sensible measures, lowered blood alcohol content level and what we saw over the last 30 years, drunk driving deaths came down.
9:07pm
i think that sensible reasonable measures can be made. >> sean: let me ask you about the measure, i, for example, our president by the way, rightly so, our cabinet members, politicians, hollywood stars, our money, your money in a bank is protected with an armed guard. when wayne lapierre brought up the idea of, say a retired police officer, looking for a job, and being in a school. is that such a silly idea? is that-- my father-- my father's a retired police officer, my little brother is a police officer, i don't get armed protection, but now, i do support allowing our retired police officers to carry concealed weapons, that's not a bad idea. >> sean: i say hiring them in a school to prevent. we have laws you can't bring guns into schools. we have laws that prevent criminals from using them. we have laws that say mentally ill people can't have them. so-- >> the president has said all options are on the table. i support the president. we need to look at everything and my concern about putting them in schools is, who is going to pay for that? our children right now are
9:08pm
already suffering from budget cuts. >> sean: you guys are broke. congressman cotton, welcome you to the program, but this is a really serious issue and obviously now the left feels energized. is there any law that would have been passed beforehand that you could think of congressman cotton, that would have prevented the tragedy. columbine happened after the last assault weapon ban. any law that you think would have prevented this? >> sean, i don't think there are gun control measures that would have prevented the newtown killings or mass murders. one kiwi could adopt the dangerously mentally ill from getting firearms in the first place and that's where some of the key solutions will come, i believe. for instance, the national background check system is woefully inadequate when it comes to mental illness records. we need to reform health privacy laws so children and doctors can ensure the authorities are aware of the dangerously mentally ill. we also need to help states to assist in outpatient treatment
9:09pm
programs. we're not going back to the regime of institutionallizing the mentally ill on mass levels we had pre-1960's, but we need to make sure they're getting the treatment they deserve. connecticut had an assault weapons ban. and california has an assau san weapons ban and large magazine. but from 1994-2004 had any measurable effect on crime. >> would i say, sean, when was the last time that major media were in california for a mass shooting. so we are seeing-- >> i would say during the stockton killing many years ago. >> that was before our assault weapons ban. >> sean: i was out there, but listen, if-- by their very nature, congressman, criminals do not obey laws and what we're talking about here is impinging on the rights of law abiding citizens, the 99.9% and it's not going to solve the problem of those killing people. you're not taking away people's alcohol, not taking away their cars, not grounding
9:10pm
aircraft all of which are dangerous. al sharpton says if the next incident happens with a knife, we're going to have knife control in america. how far do you go with this logic of yours. >> what congressman cotton says, he's a military hero who i have deep respect for. i don't disagree with anything that congressman cotton said as far as a comprehensive bill that looks at mental health treatment. >> and-- yeah. >> and that has to be on the table. i was a prosecutor, sean, for seven years and i know -- you're right, we cannot end and get rid of all mass shootings, but we can take-- >> and measures to bring it down. >> sean: if you say you shoot guns, by the way, i was outed today as a gun owner because i have a license car i permit. other people in new york, i would assume, as a congressman and believing the right of privacy, that you think that's wrong. am i right about that? >> that you were outed as a licensed-- >> in other words, it was printed on a website that i have a license carry permit. i've had it more than half of my adult life.
9:11pm
did you think that's appropriate? >> if it violated privacy rights, sure, it's wrong. >> sean: but does that violate privacy rights? do you think i should have the right, do you believe in my right to privacy and my family's right to privacy. >> i do. if it went through the proper channels for disclosure, it's right, if it didn't, it's wrong. >> sean: you didn't answer the question. do you think that's wrong morally. >> that you were outed as a gun owner? >> yeah. >> i think having a national system that tracks who owns guns is fine. i don't think on the internet-- >> it's nobody's business, i'm a law abiding citizen. you know, for liberals to claim they believe in the right to privacy, this debate is obviously going to be very, very intense in the the days to come. thank you both for being with us. appreciate it. >> thanks, sean. >> thank you, sean. >> sean: the audacity of the president was on full display with the nomination of chuck hagel, why handsdown a bad
9:12pm

9:15pm
>> welcome back to hannity. president obama's arrogance was on full display when he nominated chuck hagel to be the next defense secretary. while there are numerous reasons this would be disastrous move for the country one thing for certain, hagel is not a fan of our closest ally. after hearing about our commander-in-chief's controversial pick, emergency committee for israel released this ad. watch this. >> secretary of defense chuck hagel, president obama says he supports sanctions on iran. hagel voted against them. hagel voted against labeling iran's revolutionary guard a terrorist group. while president obama says all options are on the table for preventing a nuclear iran,
9:16pm
president obama, for secretary of defense, chuck hagel is not a responsible option. >> sean: joining me now, a rising star in the republican party mo has already come out and voiced opposition to hagel's nomination. texas senator in the studio ted cruz, on your big victory. >> thank you, good to be here. >> sean: it's great to have you. what about his inability to name terrorist groups for what they are? >> it's really remarkable. you know, that ad, i think, highlighted a number of the aspects of senator hagel's record that are most troubling. you take, for example, a vote on designating the iranian revolutionary guard as a terrorist group. at the time the revolutionary guard was sending explosive projectile into iraq and used to kill service members. that's the definition of terrorism and it it makes one wonder, if they're not terrorists, who is. >> sean: it's not only them, it's hezbollah, yasser arafat, fatah at the time, hamas. what about these issues with
9:17pm
israel? he actually even talked about a starting point, he accepted the saudi peace initiative which would have forced israel to return the golan heights, the west bank, much of jerusalem, which would mean they'd have indefensible borders and the statement about the jewish lobby intimidates a lot of people up there. >> you look at chuck hagel's record and it places him on the outer fringe in terms of his views of national security. in fact, "the washington post" describes him as, quote, near the fringe of the senate. now, this is a man who served honorably for his nation. he was wounded defending his nation. i respect him personally, but his views are not in the mainstream and i don't think they'd serve this nation well leading defense. >> sean: and then nomination of brennan for cia who says jihad is a legitimate tenant of islam.
9:18pm
jihad, holy war, terrorism against westerners? >> there's a pattern here, sean, which is i think the president has drunk the kool-aid. he was reelected and at this point he thinks he can do nothing wrong. he went through the fiscal cliff, got exactly what he wanted in the fiscal cliff, and take the hagel nomination, for example. they floated this trial balloon for several weeks and you saw a number of republicans come out against it. you saw crickets chirping among democrats senators. typically one floats a trial balloon to get a sense of support. it was clear there was strong bipartisan opposition to chuck hagel and president obama decided he didn't care. he was going to force it through and pick this fight because i think politically he thinks he can pick any fight he wants. >> sean: it's interesting now, because the president has definitely shown that arrogance, i totally agree with you. all right, you said something the other day i was really glad you said. i think the republicans were weak when it came to the fiscal cliff. i think they have a lot more leverage now over the debt ceiling. >> yeah. >> sean: so my question to you, you said they should be
9:19pm
willing to shut the government down, not all functions. >> right. >> sean: what would you shut down and do you think your fellow republicans had do that? >> well, i hope we stand strong. the reason we got a lousy deal with the fiscal cliff, because president obama had the leverage. because when you've got a divided government, whoever owns the default, whoever wins if nothing is done is in the strongest position, obama was in a strong position there if nothing was done taxes were raised on every american taxpayer. with respect to the debt ceiling, we have the default. if fiscal conservatives can stand together we can have some substantive reforms, pro reforms, if not a default and obama it going to say that over and over and over again, we should be clear, it's not a default we should always, always, all the pay our debt. what it would be a partial government shutdown. we saw it in 1995 with republicans in congress. >> sean: it worked.
9:20pm
we got to a balanced budget for the first time. >> year after year after year. >> sean: all right. let me ask you, there seems to be this trial balloon, i'll talk a little more about the next segment and if you look at article 1, constitution, says all legislative powers here granted shall be invested in congress and goes on spending is in the house of representatives. >> yes. >> sean: it seems floating that trial balloon they want to use 14th amendment, section 4, as the debt. why constitutional, in your authority, is that? it's never been tried before. we've never had debt like this before. if he tries to circumvent the house of representatives authority, what does that mean? >> it's part and parcel with this president demonstrated in the first determine, disregarding. as a constitutional litigator it warms my heart to see you pull out a copy of the constitution. >> sean: i carry it with me everywhere, so-- >> we saw in the first term the president repeatedly
9:21pm
ignore the constraints of the constitution, ignore the constraints of federal law to implement his agenda and i think in the second term that's only going to get worse. >> sean: because he's arrogant, after the fiscal cliff, after the reelection, he doesn't have to worry about election again. >> i tell you what, liberals should be be concerned about this. if you're on the left, you shouldn't like an imperial president, a nixonion president that disregards congress. congress is a democratic check on the president and yet, it seems the left is absolutely silent. >> sean: well, you're a breath of fresh air in the senate and we're certainly happy there as a conservative. thank you for being with us and hope you'll come on the program often. good to see you. >> good to see you, shaean, thanks nor having me. >> sean: did the president lie to you when he raised taxes on 77% of americans. i'm going to show you why the answer is a resounding yes. speaking of taxing, you what your hard earned dollars
9:22pm
are funding? octo-mom. and spending hard earned money this was the hole my waist was on. but since i've been on alli, am i on this one? nope. am i on this one? no, no, no, no, no. i am on this one.

9:25pm
one delicious, 90-calorie slimful and a glass of water, like before dinner, helps keep me satisfied for hours. so instead of this much, i only need this much. and slimful tastso good... i don't even miss dessert. slimful and a glass of water... eating less is a beautiful thing. >> all right. taxpayers, better beware. one week after capitol hill passed the fiscal cliff bill. they're not done taking money out of your paycheck. well, in fact, it looks like they're just getting started. >> do you then agree with the republican leader in the senate, mr. mcconnell, who says we're done now with the taxing side of it and now we have to concentrate on spending. is that done now. >> no, no. >> the revenue side testiof it
9:26pm
taken care of. >> no, the president said originally he wanted 1.6 trillion dollars in revenue. he took it down to 1.2 as a compromise and this legislation again, 620 billion dollars, very significant, high end tax, high end tax rate to 39.6%, but that's not enough on the revenue side. we're already agreed to a trillion dollars in spending cuts, over a trillion dollars in spending cuts. >> so are you then saying to the upper classes, get ready, you're going to have to pay some more, this is not the end of it? >> well, i'm saying that's not off the table. >> that's not off the table. but not in terms of tax rates. but in terms of other-- >> you're talking deductions. >> and the rest. >> sean: now it gets worse because even though president obama and his liberal cohorts promised they'd only raise taxes on the top 1%, the tax policy center that crunched the number discovered that 77% of american households are going to see their taxes go up. what a way to start off the year. joining me now with reaction,
9:27pm
co-host of "the five", dana perino and jason riley, good to see you both. i've got it right he said over and over again 1%. >> you learned well during the campaign, that's the thing he talked about, but the 99% realized though, that the government is going to get you coming and going. >> sean: all right. here, i'm going to play the tape of obama, only going to raise taxes 1%, 99% won't see their taxes go up. did the president lie to you? we'll examine that after you watch this. >> 98% of americans and 97% of small businesses wouldn't see their income taxes go up by a single dime. make sure the taxes on the 98% of americans don't go up and then we should let the tax cuts expire for folks like me, for the top 2% of americans. >> if on the other hand if you make less than $250,000 a year like 98% of american families do, your taxes shouldn't go up. that's all there is to it.
9:28pm
>> if you make more than 1 million dollars a year, you should pay at least the same percentage of your income in taxes as middle class families do. >> the last thing you want to do is to raise taxes in the middle of a recession. >> sean: all right, wait a minute, 77% of americans just saw their taxes go up. did he lie? >> well, i don't know, i don't know if i can say lie, but-- >> a problem, sean. >> help me. >> socializing u.s. health care is expensive and his second term agenda is going to be finding enough revenue to pay for his first term agenda. and the amazing thing for me here is how quickly the democrats moved the goal post. congressman sandy levin was on the floor, on the house floor as they were voting on the fiscal cliff bill, saying we're going to have to continue to raise taxes more. now, dick durbin is out there calling for an energy tax. we have howard dean over the weekend saying, no, taxing the rich isn't enough. but obama knew this, he knew taxing-- because it was about tax fairness, remember.
9:29pm
the rhetoric, flying, that was a cast warfare argument and then they're going to go for the carbon tax and loopholes and call it tax reform, but it's still a tax increase. >> the obamacare tax increases are the ones that are really going to hurt people and it's not just that, but when nancy pelosi was talking in the opening cliff there, they say they've got this trillion dollar tax cut, it doesn't hold up to scrutiny in. the poll that said that congress is less popular not just-- but than a colonoscopy. >> sean: i've had one, go ahead. >> the president obama in the rose garden said we have an entitlement spending program and we're going to have to deal with that. when jason says he's going to have to pay in the second term for the actions in the first term. he has to pay for the inaction. he could have done tax reform and entitlement reform in the first term and chose not to. >> sean: the reality, they've spent the money and floated this trial balloon and the trial balloon is mr. president, bypassed congress and article 1 section
9:30pm
7 which says all bills for raising revenue originate in the house of representatives, use the 14th amendment to talk about debt. that, to me, would be shredding the constitution. no president has ever tried or attempted, we've never been in this position before to do that. if he picks that fight, which it seems like democrats are now urging him to do, 27 of them, how big a problem will that be in the country. i think a huge problem. their problem is the middle class is where the money is. we've seen, how many states, about a dozen state have million area taxes, but they all kick in at a much lower level. hawaii's kicks in 200,000. maryland's at 250. they have to, that's where the money is. you cannot fund the government that obama wants by only taxing wealthy americans and higher rates. >> sean: so we can't fund the obama welfare state without -- we can't pay for it? >> i think that it's a pox on everybody's houses in washington. this is the analogy that i like. if you were to go home and found at that there had been a
9:31pm
sewage blockage in your basement, you don't raise the ceiling of the basement, you pump out the sewage. that's what people expect. >> sean: i don't know what to make about the analogy. sewage problems, colonoscopies. >> these are great analogies. you can't raise the ceiling, get it? i was trying to say sewage without laughing. >> sean: you did a great job. thank you for being with us. coming up a story guaranteed to make you mad. recipients living large at the strip club. showing you where your hard earned tax dollars are spent and the government still thinks you're not paying your fair share. that's coming up ahead and log on to our companion site. hannity live, follow our live show and get in depth information on the topics we cover. all you have to do is go to hannity live .foxnews.com and get exclusive real time content directly from the producer in the control room

>> and welcome back to "hannity." now that the obama administration has taken more money out of your wallet each and every week. you want to know where some of your hard earned money is going? it will probably make you angry. the new york post through the freedom of information act got a hold of record of welfare recipients. they took out cash at bars and liquor stores and x-rated
9:36pm
video shops, huka bars and strip clubs where they presumably spent tax money on lap dances rather than diapers. unbelievable. glad it's going to good use, that's what fair share is about. joining me with reaction michael meyers and sirius xm host david webb. strip bar, you've been to a hooka bar? i've walked by. i didn't know what it was a month ago. >> here is the thing, you lower the bar for people to spend money to feed a government program. there's another side to this besides the fact that like texas, like other states, you can identify the atm machines and decide you can't withdraw from this atm machine or that atm machine in that establishment because it's supposed to be about feeding your children, feeding yourself, taking care of your basic needs. look, people send me receipts, sean, all the time on twitter or my show, here, a guy bought five lobsters or a woman who
9:37pm
bought this on ebt card. that's abuse of the system that's actually designed to bridge for people, welfare reform, or work fair and get them to be back to be productive members of society. they don't want you, they want you sucking on it, want you using the card and why they lower the bar. >> is it my turn. >> sean: it's your turn. >> look, this is a real distraction from the the real issue. we have 47 million people in america on food stamps. we have millions of people who are unemployed. we have a media that's now, we make it, a quick retreat from the real focus on incompetent, undisciplined, failure of a president, a man who is mocking the poor every day, through not addressing the economy. and here we have-- and i have zero tolerance for welfare cheats, i have zero tolerance for sleazy journalism and this is what this is, this is obstructive and go back to the bread and butter issues and sin of sex--
9:38pm
>> and you read the story. >> no you didn't read the story. >> it was on the front cover-- >> wait a minute. >> the story says, i have the pictures, and this is a family show. now, the story says that data base of 200 million people and then they said, well, you know, we purchased and we found dozens out of 200 million, dozens of, plural, the not dozens of people, dozens of-- and that's the point. dozens of withdrawals from atm's located in such places as bars and-- >> wait a minute. >> wait a minute, then they said in the story, we presume that they spent the money in these places. >> but, mike-- >> and i go into a strip bar and withdrawing money in a strip bar, oh, 'cause i want to get, let's he see, diapers in the strip bar? >> whoa, whoa, might sell them there, that's a different room. i'll give michael a little credit. and he's actually right about this because the idea here, but i opened up with, lowering
9:39pm
the bar so people can use it anywhere, which is a way to spend the money to justify a bigger budget. >> i agree, wait a minute-- >> michael, take out of the story what's important, you shouldn't be able to use this anywhere except for supermarket and where you can get sustenance. >> sean: last week giving out 19,000 checks to people on welfare, don't know who they are, they don't exist. >> sean, this ebt, electronic benefit transfer program are what people temporarily on disability and again, you lose the focus, these are also the-- >> and the disability anymore-- >> the poor and low income are also the casualties of program's program of neglect. benign neglect of the poor and favortism for the cronies, and they want-- >> tell you what, how many --. >> happying on. >> we'll get to the deeper aspect of this. >> yeah, i do. >> and wait a minute, they're spending all this money and they keep talking about raising taxes and they won't cut spending, but there's all
9:40pm
